Each transaction should show which account it was made on, that way users with multiple accounts can quickly tell where a transaction should go.
Would be 5 Stars But...
by Djjim704 on 2020/03/28 20:02
This app is fantastic. However the $99 price tag for Every Dollar Plus is too expensive. Many other apps import transactions from your bank for half that price. Dave claims this is to cover the cost of connecting to your bank but there is obviously quite a bit of profit built in to the price tag. $99 is tough to swallow for folks in baby step 2 trying to get out of debt. Lower the price to $50 a year or $6 a month and I think many more people would sign up. For now, I’ll use other apps such as YNAB that are half the price. I love Ramsey’s teachings and am an avid follower, but the price of this product is out of line.
App Never Works
by Taraxox0 on 2020/03/27 20:28
I pay for premium, which the best selling point is that you don’t have to manually enter in your purchases. Not sure why I paid for premium when every time I log onto the app, I have to re-enter my bank account information anyways. It’s a great app when it works, but now it’s not even allowing my to add my bank account information since my bank no longer shows up when I search for if. My recommendation would be to use a free excel sheet and save your money.
Love the App! Sign in streak must go!!!
by Ibnfe_al on 2020/03/27 15:22
I love this app it’s so easy to use once the monthly budget is made. I prefer to use the computer to set up my monthly budget. Please give me the option to remove the sign in streak. I don’t need to sign in every day because I don’t spend money every day. Gives the app a cheap game like feel. Are you going to give me bonus money for meeting the 7 days in a row goal? Will be a two star until I have this sign in streak off the app or the option to.
Will not stay updated with your account
by rockyj726 on 2020/03/27 07:42
I’ve used this app for about 3 weeks. It worked fine until this past week. I’ve refreshed my login numerous times each day for the past several days and still has not updated what’s been spent. Very frustrating when you are trying to track your spending and you are not able to. The concept of the app is great. We have been very excited about this app but it was like it just quit. Deleted the app, will try to download it again and hope for better results.
Too expensive
by Bellefille11 on 2020/03/27 07:10
I’m very disappointed about how much this app. cost. It’s heartbreaking! Seems like a good app, but it’s too expensive to enjoy the full version.
Awful support!!!
by Wallfamily4 on 2020/03/27 02:09
I have had months worth of issues getting EveryDollar to work with my credit union. It took over a month to get it working and two months later it quit and still have not gotten fixed after six weeks and multiple notes and service tickets!!!! First issue is that if you put in an issue, you get a note it will be 4-5 days before they will get back to you. Then they blame the credit union for making changes, which sounds reasonable but I have tried multiple other budgeting apps (Mint, Simplifi, etc) and they all connect every time with no issues!!!!! I was an IT manager for a fortune 50 company and if my service desk and support operated this way, we would have made big changes or I would be gone! I am fed up! Hopefully writing terrible reviews will help. I am also an FPU coordinator and love most things that comes out of Ramsey Solutions. The app is actually very good, just hope you don’t have any issues because there is no ownership or hustle to do anything.
by J got robbed on 2020/03/26 03:33
Please stop changing the layout. It’s a great app but I find the old layout is the easiest to use.
Reporting feature?
by briyamada on 2020/03/25 11:25
Love this app but wish there were a way to look at finances over whole year. What percentage of income was budgeted per category vs. what was spent. It’d be interesting to see how much income was planned, spent and still remains from a “Starbucks” fund everyone knows and loves.
Sign in streak
by -tmoa- on 2020/03/24 18:26
First: it serves little or no useful purpose Second: it doesn’t work correctly Therefore it’s a waste of screen real estate. Make it optional or remove it.
Almost there
by MTUBL on 2020/03/23 03:38
Just gotta be honest. It’s either this or YNAB. This has the lead due to it being free. I wish it was easier to simply adjust planned spending to other categories like YNAB does. Other than that, I like how they categorize and let you see the pie charts. I look forward to updates and improvements! Keep up the good work! I LOVE budgeting!
Changing Layout Too Frequently
by Camthemancam on 2020/03/22 15:53
Great app, used daily. Frustrating to see them change the layout of the app so often after getting used to an already good version.
Won’t let me log in!
by supdawf1234 on 2020/03/22 07:05
Hey I’m a big fan of the app but it not letting me log in. The keyboard moves to an oversized image where I’m not able to type. Please fix ASAP!!
Absolutely useless.
by Egetts on 2020/03/21 22:40
Do NOT buy the paid version of the app. The app won’t connect to my bank for more than a day at a time, meaning it doesn’t update any of my purchases. The help guide simply says some banks have better connection than others. Was I made aware of this before I put down $100 for the full version? No. So I’ve paid $100 for an app that doesn’t work and I can’t get a refund. Awesome.
by NekoKills on 2020/03/21 19:03
its one of those apps where you have to email and ask for permission to delete your account. They will also ignore your request and send you constant emails
Not Great
by Samham24574467 on 2020/03/21 00:50
This might be fine if you have super simple finances, but it’s really hard to track things like withdrawals from savings, credit card payments, unusual income, etc. I’m finding it requires a lot of upkeep and monitoring even on the Plus plan. It also doesn’t seem to want to track transactions from credit cards despite the fact that I have the accounts linked, and it keeps telling me I’m over budget by one number when I can only find one category I over spent in, and it’s a different amount over. Kind of disappointed because I really wanted to make it work.
Garbage app
by @TheDream_09 on 2020/03/20 14:28
Charged my card before giving me the “free trial” for using the plus version.
Confusing and misleading if you take them up on an offer to resubscribe.
by Pbauble on 2020/03/19 15:24
We had utilized the EveryDollar app a few years ago, but due to extreme circumstances, we cancelled all subscriptions for a time. Now, we are in a position to get life back in order, and EveryDollar is one way we knew to go about that. When I downloaded the app, I was asked if I would like to subscribe, and the app stated we would have a seven day trial. I didn’t really need a trial, but I followed the prompts to resubscribe. I couldn’t find the monthly option, so I hit subscribe, believing I would be given that option in a later step. I wasn’t. I was charged $129. When I called Apple support to change it, I was told that that option isn’t given to folks who are resubscribing. That’s a little harsh and misleading. Customers should be told UP FRONT that, due to having previously subscribed, they are not eligible for a monthly payment plan. Those of us that are getting back on our feet and really need this should be able to purchase the app. That’s a big hunk of money at one time for some folks. Please, consider changing the process for those of us who would like to resubscribe.
Planned income
by Delivery Jon on 2020/03/19 00:23
I’m paid hourly and the app used to say planned, received, and tell the difference under the income. This was helpful to know how much I needed to work as the month was narrowing down to make sure I made what was budgeted for the month. I can just do the math but i wish they would bring this back
Can you please make it so it doesn’t sign us out everytime!
by bloo1020 on 2020/03/18 16:42
It’s getting pretty annoying, on every update you have to resign in and go through 15 windows to sign in. I really like this app but keep ya signed in!
So Sad
by Lucy_lala on 2020/03/18 07:29
I started the Dave Ramsey Baby Steps around November of last year. I loved the budgeting aspect! So into it that I proactively and meticulously planned my budgets all the way to December... when it came time to repay for the program, I opted out, because I didn’t need it. My whole account was deleted for everydollar. The app is free so I don’t understand why that would happen. Nonetheless the time I put into setting up these budgets is now lost and I’m really on the fence about restarting an account or not.
Good app
by Jhauer on 2020/03/17 11:14
Love the app and the way you can separate all the expenses...don’t like how you have to re-verify all your accounts when you sign in to the app.
Not IPad compatible
by Huntd3 on 2020/03/17 00:35
Love Dave Ramsey and this app! However it would be nice if it was full screen on IPad.
Can’t support Dave Ramsey any more. App is just ok, buggy
by Sarah98776434556 on 2020/03/16 21:58
Recently saw an awful video that Dave posted about COVID-19. He was basically throwing a fit because some of his conferences are getting postponed or cancelled due to the worldwide pandemic. Yelling that no one will receive a refund. He was also spreading mis-information about COVID-19 which could put millions of people in danger. Dave claims he’s a Christian but obviously he cares more about making money then about the safety of people. I will never support any of this man’s products again. Also the app is buggy, sometimes takes 3+ business days for purchases to come through, and then they don’t even use the purchase date. It’s whatever random date that the purchase came through the app. Also couldn’t connect Chase checking account. There are better options out there that are not created by selfish ignorant people.
When it works, it’s amazing
by Elsenot on 2020/03/16 00:57
I’ve been using Everydollar for a few years now. I enjoy that it helps me keep me on track and it allows me to track my purchases. However, that is the bare minimum for an app that is designed specifically for that purpose. Every time I get paid through direct deposit I have to delete my account from the app and re-add it, otherwise it’s endless refreshing to see if it goes through (spoiler alert: it doesn’t). After reconnecting my account I have to sit there and delete the duplicate transactions. It’s a hassle and a chore when I am paying $10 a month for an app that barley works. The three stars is generous.
Good App could be great
by Jskaler on 2020/03/15 23:33
Desktop site is amazing, app is ok. Please make an iPad app and make the functionality like the desktop site. Still the best budgeting tool out there.
Feedback on Fund Categories
by trying to make it easier on 2020/03/14 19:15
I think money that is allocated to funds should tally in the spent category in the same month. When I save the money, I’ve already set it aside and it is no longer available to be spent elsewhere. When I actually spend the money, it may be in a different month and I don’t want it to show up in my spent because I have already co spidered it spent.
by wee me #pnpgroupie on 2020/03/14 03:02
I don’t understand. I’m trying no to update my budget. Taking things out. Adding go things in. I don’t know why I’m having trouble. I feel dumb for not understanding because it seems like it should be easy. I don’t know how to show that I’ve paid something when I go to the paid tab. I don’t know how to explain my frustration without walking through it and seeing it. Maybe it will get easier if I do it more often. 🤷🏻‍♀️
My new lifestyle

Able to finally move out!
by kdnebbqjsmms on 2020/03/13 16:50
I used Mint forever but it totally broke down and I’m so glad it did and I found this. I am actually budgeting and saving money. So easy to use and such a pretty interface.
Need excel export feature
by soffeah on 2020/03/13 14:39
Love everything about this app yet it would be so much helpful to export out transactions
Dave saved my life
by Fakt reeder :) on 2020/03/12 23:38
Countless bills, 15 mouths to feed, a dog with testicular cancer and my own personal battle with Ebola seemed insurmountable financially. Thank you, Dave, for showing me the light. I live like no one else so I can live like no one else.
Great idea but
by Lianiek02! on 2020/03/12 22:03
I love what it does when it works. You pay a lot of money for the app and real time tracking of your finances but it seems as though I have problems with the app and my bank account. Not worth the price you pay for the crashes. it does even work for me now and has not in 4 days.
Question about the currency
by Lhk1657494 on 2020/03/12 22:01
I love this app and recently the currency got changed to euro.. how can I switch it to dollars?? Thanks
by okinsel on 2020/03/12 18:32
Very good app. Has helped me an my wife with staying on a budget I use the free part of that app and really enjoy it.
by shaslove on 2020/03/12 05:41
This morning my transactions are in the app. Now it keeps saying I need Everydollar plus (which I have). Ugh.
Premium is $129 a year? Way to much!
by KGW72977 on 2020/03/11 15:32
While I appreciate the tool and it’s functionality the price for this is way too high. The Mint app is free and has a lot more features. Not sure what ya’ll are charged by the banks but I can’t imagine it’s that much. I’d pay $.99 a month that’s it.
$129.99 a year
by basildunn on 2020/03/11 02:58
I have uploaded and deleted this app previously but I really want a way to track my debt and payment dates. Ramsey loves to make money off people and I’m not sure why he thinks his products and junk is okay to spend money on when you’re trying to gain “financial freedom.”
Won’t let me create an account.
by all4Jesus!. on 2020/03/11 00:50
A message pops up that says, “an unknown error occurred” after creating a password on a new account. I thought about creating an account on the computer but before I did I tried the login button for those who have an account. It says, “Something went wrong. We have let the support team know.” I tried updating the app. I tried deleting an reinstalling app with no success. Useless app to me. Help me, help me, help me, Dave!! This app is delaying my debt free scream! ;)
Don’t Pay for Plus Because You Can’t Get A Refund If It Doesn’t Work
by AndreaG93 on 2020/03/11 00:37
I know Dave would say that it’s safe to say I’m wrong in my review of the app since the majority of people rate it so highly... but I am NOT having a similar experience. I signed up for the plus version of the app 5 1/2 weeks ago. I have yet to experience it linking to my bank account. I have reached out to support four times and the issue has still not been resolved. I requested a refund or extension of my trial and they said they were unable to do that because Apple does the processing. I would be happy to change my review if my situation changes but I keep being told that they will update me and resolve the issues and I keep having to request support again. Seems like I’m one of the only ones with this issue apparently.
Latest update
by Theawesomeoneofallthings on 2020/03/10 23:39
I can no longer sign in to the app. When I click the sign in link it pops up a message that something went wrong and support has been notified.
Unable to save transactions.
by eileenlemus on 2020/03/10 21:16
I just spent 30 minutes uploading transactions that didn’t even save. I tried it twice. Can you please fix whatever glitches are causing these errors?
Big disappointment
by Chris5az on 2020/03/10 18:54
Almost impossible to work with if you are on a 2- week payroll with no set dates. Fix would be so simple . Just let people set their own income period instead of fixed month. It is beyond me why that easy fix isn’t integrated. Do not recommend for anyone not on a 1st / 15th pay schedule which is probably most of Americans.
Bring back....
by mohomie88 on 2020/03/10 14:12
I work 3 jobs and one is tipped based so I have a planned amount for my budget but I add in every dollar that I make.... I loved previously that it would show me the amount I needed to get to my planned budget... now that’s gone and the cute circle is there to show progress but I really liked knowing the dollar amount. I know I can do the math myself but since I budget obsessively, it was just nice having it there for me.
Try it!
by j7$ on 2020/03/10 12:06
Try it! Great app
by dan.nad on 2020/03/09 18:52
I was supposed to get a 1 or 2 weeks 👉🏻 FREE trial 👈🏻 of the premium (I think it was two weeks), and after that it would be charging me $129.99 a year. Well, i was charged right away, got the premium. But I didn’t really find “the premium” useful, so I canceled my subscription on the FIRST day of using it. BUT I still haven’t gotten my money back! Been waiting since March 6th. I like the app, but won’t change my review, until I get my money back!
Zero Based Budget Wonder
by joesharkfish on 2020/03/09 11:45
I tried so many budgeting apps and none compare to EveryDollar.
This app has changed my financial future!
by Chase082617 on 2020/03/09 02:35
For years I have been trying different methods of budgeting. I have tried everything from excel spreadsheets to and nothing has been easy so I have not stuck with anything. Once I got EveryDollar for my wife and I we she. Completely changed the way we have thought about money. All that extra money at the top of our budget now has somewhere to go that is not just wasting it. I love that it is focused on what matters and is truly customized. Super excited for some of these new updates and features. I have been using the app for years, and it is better than ever!
Love it, but I have two issues.
by Hdbomar92 on 2020/03/09 02:26
Overall the app works awesome and the interface is really nice and simple. Ill continue using for a while to see how it goes. I really like that I get to choose my own categories and not use a list of predetermined ones like Mint. However there is 2 issues for me that I think Mint is doing better. Issue 1: Not be able to budget/categorize pending transactions. For me this is a huge issue, I like tracking purchases every night and I use my budget often to decide if I should be spending on a certain thing. Therefor, waiting for stuff pending to actually show up can really make things pop up on my list of transactions that I totally forgot about, and make me go over budget. Because not all pending things clear in 2-3 days. I have had lots of things take awhile to actually clear, even weeks. Therefor, Mint is doing much better on this part and I really wish to see them add this in because it may cause me to switch back after a couple months of trying it out. Issue 2: Net budget option by month. Not all of us make the same money every month. For me I have an amount I generally expect but some months I may make more and others less. Moreover, some months i may spend more and others less. I wish there was a simple way of seeing my Actual money in and actual money out total, and then how much did i go over or under my actual, not planned. Currently you can do this by doing some math and putting everything together yourself but thats not why I pay $10. There needs to be and column that says net monthly spending and it subtracts the net income - net spending = X very simple.
Great app
by rileymartin22 on 2020/03/09 01:18
A little buggy with the newest version, but I’d give 5/5 if they showed a pie chart or some insights on how much I spend or make on average per category of my budget. That would help me a lot in choosing how much I should budget for the upcoming month in certain categories
Changing things doesn’t make it better
by Lfxangus on 2020/03/09 00:06
They’ve been changing the appearance to look more streamlined, but you lose valuable information in the process.
Please remove the sign in streak
by debbster425 on 2020/03/08 17:11
While I love the app and have used for months to budget, I really dislike the sign in streak taking up room at the top of the screen. It’s not needed, at least consider making it optional for those of us who don’t need it.
Going downhill
by brettdalton on 2020/03/08 14:00
The UI is getting bloated in the name of being “new,” reminds me of the downfall of Mint app.
Not good
by kaptian kaboom! on 2020/03/07 23:57
I Down loaded the app on my phone and my lap top. and when. It prompted me to create a budget. I kept getting error message. Not good app keeps crashing
Please keep it simple
by schoman on 2020/03/07 18:40
I’ve been using this app for over a year and it is life changing. Absolutely love it, but I’m starting to see a trend that will cause me to look for something else. Please keep it simple and don’t ruin it with complicated UI. For example the new sign in streak section is completely not needed and takes up valuable real estate. I love the app so much I actually log in like every hour. I don’t need a metric to motivate me to log in on a daily basis. If the developers really think this kind of bloat is necessary please make them optional. Also suggest the “+” to add a new transaction should remain in a consistent location across different screens. It’s in the upper right corner on the budget tab but then in the lower right corner in the transaction screen. Please keep it simple, thanks!
Still needs improvement
by JRollins87 on 2020/03/07 13:15
For the Plus version, it takes 3-4 days for your transactions to appear. In Mint, your transactions appear the same day.. and Mint is FREE. I love EveryDollar but will have to cancel my plus membership (again) if it keeps taking this long for transactions to appear.
Unify Desktop Site and Phone App
by TinaFish on 2020/03/06 17:25
All of my earlier remarks were added to the app! So thank you for listening! I love the new streak feature, what a great little motivator to keep in touch with what your money is up to! - - - - - - - - There are a few extra capabilities on the desktop version than there are on the app, like having the ability to make a line a fund. Or adding notes to your budget line. Please add these as it’s frustrating to have to go back and forth between my computer and my phone to really finish my budget for the month.
From a new user’s perspective..
by A. S. Hopper on 2020/03/06 15:05
Love Dave Ramsey’s podcast and finally decided to give the Every Dollar app a try. Went through setting up recurring bills last night and noticed two things that keep me from going all-in and pulling the trigger on the Plus version, even though I want to. - Not all the categories apply to my situation, and I suspect I’m not unique in this regard. With no way to hide or at least minimize or even re-order the unused categories to the bottom, it becomes a bit of a case of information overload. Personally, when it comes to the topic this app is trying to help people with i.e. budgeting, bills, and lots of things with their corresponding numbers, I can’t overstate how much it helps us to reduce clutter so we can focus on this. Otherwise it becomes just a big blur. With that said, I’d like to see a simple +/- added to the category headers which signifies when users tap the category header it will minimize/expand. That’s probably the quickest solution (both for you to implement and for users to use), other ways to accomplish this would be enabling hiding categories completely or enabling reordering categories so users can shuffle unused ones to the bottom and reduce the clutter they‘re currently seeing. On second thought, enabling reordering both categories and items within them to other categories (users can currently reorder items within a category but can’t move them to a different category) would be very helpful to prioritize, sort by due date or alphabetize, etc. (whichever is most helpful to each user). As an example, when I was adding items last night I added an item I later realized belonged in a different category—which already existed. I noticed I was unable to just drag and drop the item to the different category and instead had to recreate the item in the right category and go back and delete the item from the wrong category. Drag and drop would have been both easier and quicker. - The second thing I noticed is Every Dollar currently doesn’t support dark mode or night mode. Knowing the importance of good rest and the negative impact bright screens in the evening can have on circadian rhythms I am a big proponent of these features. Check out Firefox browser, the way they implemented this gives users a lot of control over the brightness of the theme and when/if/how it changes. I actually stopped using Chrome recently—my go-to browser for years—because now that dark mode is available they have yet to implement it, and the dark mode implementation on Firefox is nothing short of wonderful. Now that the budgeting bug has bit me, I’m excited to start using this tool to begin improving my financial health. Except these two UI issues expressed above will nag me. I’ll keep using the app, and keep an eye on the updates. I really love it when I take the time to write a review, and give feedback, and explain the feedback, and the company values that feedback from its users and responds by implementing the suggestions. Lastly, thank you Dave Ramsey and team, for improving my life already...
Transaction history sync with account

My account sync is delayed all transactions do not show up in the app
So informative
by Pfrider on 2020/03/06 03:22
Love how this budget works. Once I entered all my expenses I connected it to my bank. Now everything downloads from bank to budget. So easy to track and easily understood. I strongly recommend trying it.
Back to the app we know and love
by Kelly_P on 2020/03/04 02:25
After a buggy update in mid-February I left a review and got a quick response. The good features are back where they belong. We’ve been successfully using this since 2017. Thanks for helping us track and therefore save our money better. It’s so rewarding to see the sinking funds grow for things like a big summer vacation.
by carmencita120 on 2020/03/03 21:52
I love this App. Easy to use and super effective. I wish we could delete the headings that we don’t use. All else is good.
Best Budgeting app!
by Amymaincampos on 2020/03/03 17:11
I love, love, love this app! I have never truly been good at budgeting; I am the first to admit that. But this app makes it so easy! It helps that it was designed by Dave Ramsey who created Financial Peace University. This App is a must!
Good concept, kinda confusing
by leamds on 2020/03/03 13:03
it doesn’t mention with budgeting, am i doing monthly? weekly? it asks me about gas? well that’s about 20.00 a week, so do i put that or 80.00 for the month? i think too much for an app that doesn’t simply stuff. but, i also just downloaded it yesterday so that’s why i’m going to leave 5 stars, assuming i will get the hang of it soon.
Request for added feature
by abc28124 on 2020/03/03 02:27
Love the app always gets better and better. Would love if you added option to take photo of receipt and attach to inserted transactions.
by 2leaf on 2020/03/02 23:37
There’s not a whole lot of instructions on what and what we enter the amounts
A Couple Updates Needed
by Rwither on 2020/03/02 10:56
I love this app except for two things. You all took away the ability to go back to a previous month’s budget. This is a problem for me because I make a new budget every paycheck (2 weeks) and now it forces me to create a new one for the new month even if I don’t want to. The second thing is something I have mentioned before. There needs to be an option to completely reset a months budget, as in everything goes to zero. This would be perfect for me since I, once again, do a budget every two weeks. Other than that, this app is a great tool.
Ramsey HQ is now a den of Thieves
by sa3211 on 2020/03/02 01:28
So the app does not integrate with several banks . And when you email service about it you get the “Well we don’t actually ya know support our product that’s between you and Apple “. Translate. - “That razor blade in the sealed metal can of soup you bought is not the makers fault it’s the grocery stores who sold it to you not knowing it was in there”. Dave Ramsey you have turned your business one where everyone could actually use an affordable product into a den of thieves.
Life changing

I can't say enough good things about Dave Ramsey and his passion to help people build wealth. He makes it's simple and doable. Awesome app, awesome program!
Constant connection issues with citizens bank
by Agfelix on 2020/03/01 21:58
Pretty frustrating to constantly be having connection issues between the App and Citizens Bank for all transaction downloads when I’m paying the premium monthly. I don’t understand why there’s such issues, I’ve seriously contemplated canceling the App. But I believe in Ramsey Solutions, so I keep hoping it would be permanently fixed, but my patience with this App is wearing thin.
Very good, could be a bit better
by ETpcet on 2020/03/01 16:16
It would be helpful if pay checks could be entered just like receipts. It would also help if there was a User’s Guide for those things that are a bit tricky such as setting up and entering into funds.

I like this better than Mint now
by DTown Teacher on 2020/03/01 03:54
The zero-based budgeting system is now my favorite. I have used the budgeting software provided by my financial institutions and also Mint, but this one has become my favorite because it is not focusing on my credit or other things, just one thing: Budget. After 2 busted budgets, it finally clicked for me during month 3 that I have to go in and use the “spent” feature, which activates the “remaining” feature. I have the free version of the app, so I have to do this manually, which is actually a plus for me because it forces me to be more cognizant of what is going where and how much budget is left. I highly recommend this app! It packs a lot of financial power in a deceptively simple package.
by I'm Kyle Sadler on 2020/03/01 01:54
This is the least complicated budgeting app out there. I’m thankful that the team continues to tweak it too.
Great app
by Romeovesario on 2020/03/01 00:12
Easy to use and holding my account
No AmEx
by YesSir12345 on 2020/02/29 02:18
This could have been great, but it doesn't work with AmEx cards.
Add update email address!! Please!!!
by Mercy and Grace777 on 2020/02/28 18:01
The ONLY complaint I gave with EveryDollar is the email address/log in problem. Please update the app so that we can change to our most current email address easily within the app.
by GoodGuy108 on 2020/02/28 17:53
I signed up and paid for the first year and the app would not connect to my bank.
Please Get it Together
by Rgrthat on 2020/02/28 17:24
This app used to work really well and lately it’s been very glitchy. Seems like every third time I open it I have reconnect to my bank or uninstall and then reinstall. I’ve been using it for several years but it’s lack of ease of use is making me want to try something else.
Great app, but needs better customization for pay periods
by nielsendavidj on 2020/02/28 01:33
It would be nice to set a 4 week period instead of a month. The majority of our expenses are at the beginning of the month but the majority of the expenses are at the end of the month. If we could set a Period 1 and Period 2 for income/expenses it would be easier to count paychecks toward the end of the month for Period 1 income and expenses. Does that makes sense?
Very hard
by Appreciative1000 on 2020/02/27 20:31
Not user friendly
Bank account
by pangeliquespod on 2020/02/27 14:41
I’m an EveryDollar plus subscriber. Since the update, it won’t connect to my bank. Please fix ASAP
Great app
by Eryka Soares on 2020/02/27 00:14
I finally only need one app for all my budgeting needs 👏
Good but could be better
by Errrrrn on 2020/02/27 00:07
I have downloaded and deleted this app a few times. I like it but there are just a few things I would like to be different. I would like to lay out my budget and expenses and then just be able to tap it when it’s been paid and have it come out of the total, or check a box or something. The way it’s just set up is not very user friendly for me and what I’m looking for, but I also haven’t been able to find anything that is as well laid out.
by Cheyanne208 on 2020/02/26 17:06
Has helped me so much with budgeting!
Just one suggestion then it’ll be perfect
by TaketheD on 2020/02/26 16:01
Over to the right where you input the amounts regarding bills etc...can you guys add the total amount. I know it’s quick mad, but I would like to look over and actually see the hard number that I’m spending on “transportation” or “lifestyle” ...other than that, great app!
Update fixed, but the app is not well integrated with iOS
by AddictArts on 2020/02/26 04:39
I’m guessing the developer is unifying the codebase and that is making the app look and feel like an Android app. I understand the desire to save on development; However, the experience is inconsistent with many iOS apps. Please don’t be clever, it doesn’t need it. Consider letting the user decide on the experience if you really want to head down that road. I’m thankful for the way it works and have used it heavily. I just don’t understand the problem they are trying to solve with the significant UI changes. Save some money and keep it simple. Budgeting should be an easy thing right? More people might do it.
Does this app still offer a free version?
by Like_Itunes on 2020/02/26 03:49
Trying to use the app with no luck. Signed up but says it can’t find my budget now.
Thank you for the update back to normal!
by Josh paddock on 2020/02/26 02:38
This has been the best budgeting app for years, thank you for fixing the changes! Back to an incredible budgeting app. I’ve looked at all the budgeting apps out there and nothing compares to this one. Blows away Mint. I love having to manually put my transactions in each category. Makes you accountable and aware of what you are spending at all times. Allows you to plan ahead as well. The flexibility of modifying the budget and adding categories is a major bonus. Lee it up! Love the new baby steps app as well!
Thank you for bringing the previous version back!!
by MORE ANGRY!!!! on 2020/02/26 02:30
I love this app and use it every day. The latest version had some updates that made it really hard to use and confusing. Within a few days of posting a review the company had contacted me and had removed the changes. I imagine other people had the same trouble I did with the new version but it was great to see such an immediate and decisive response. This app really is great and can change your financial situation.
by kingherc42130 on 2020/02/26 02:26
So I loved this app and they put out an update that was horrible but to the companies credit they listened and took out those changes and the app runs beautifully now. Thank you for caring about the customer.
Huge help!
by mr geeky gadget on 2020/02/25 22:58
I love the app, I love how easy it it to use, and it’s definitely helping me to chase down my financial goals. The ONE thing I really wish it had was a way to budget weekly in addition to monthly...
by uSymbiote on 2020/02/25 22:05
The interface on this application is improving. It is a great application. There some things that could be reworked. I don’t like how the planned amount field is display in the single category view. It’s too small and didn’t respond well when I tried to adjust the cursor within the field. Previously, I wrote a rather scathing review of the UI. It was unfair. Please accept my apologies.
Confusing New Format
by drlqlott on 2020/02/25 21:07
Previously I wrote a review about a recent update that was made, preventing us from viewing the listed planned, spent and remaining budgeted amounts. I’m happy to see that the creators of the app listened to the opinions of customers reviews. This app is amazing, and it deserves every star. Thank you for considering our voices!
I used to love it ....
by JKerkhoff79 on 2020/02/25 18:58
I love the app layout and concepts and I used to really live it’s functionality .... I rejoined a couple of months ago, paying for a full year up front as that was the only option. Consistently I’ve received duplicate transactions and I have to refresh many times and try again and again to get any transactions to load. I also consistently get the message that it can’t connect to my account.
Best App Ever
by Howie3289 on 2020/02/25 18:25
I love this app. It’s so easy to use and I’ve been able to get a handle on my spending! I was doing OK before, but now I’m totally in control of my money.
I’ve used this for years
by chelsoutwest on 2020/02/25 16:44
I don’t know if I love the most recent updates, but I have used this app for years and appreciate having a financial snapshot easily accessible on my phone.
by Stappstar on 2020/02/25 15:41
This app is convenient- however it is SLOW to update your recent purchases... and trying to keep up with a budget while waiting for your purchase history from 2days ago to update to the app is annoying.
$10.83/month ?! No, thank you!
by kato122345 on 2020/02/25 11:29
I am a FPU grad and was debt free for a few years until life happened and have to start over again. Heard great things about this app after inputting all my budget in I learned that I would have to manually input all my transactions in for it to be free. To charge me $10.83/month for a budget app just to have my bank account transactions linked (which looks like it is hit or miss based on other reviews)? No thanks! I am actually very disappointed that Dave charges so much for his app. I realize he is a business but come on we are trying to get out of debt here not have another subscription to add to the budget line. YNAB is even cheaper at $84/yr and will even let you try it free for 34 days! I think I will just stick to my free Mint account.
I Use This App All The Time
by big_dan_ on 2018/06/09 13:57
I have been using every dollar since it launched. It replaced the other two or three budgeting apps that I had previously used and there has been no going back. It’s updated very regularly and is produced by a good-sized company where their whole focus is helping people get control of their finances, so the regular updates are always going to be the case. I usually set up the budget for the month on my computer and then do updates throughout the month on my phone while I am on the go. I have set up new budgets on the phone and it works great too, I am just on a computer all day every day for work so it is habit I guess. The app is very intuitive and easy to use. There is an extra feature called EveryDollar Plus that is available for a fee each month to integrate your bank data and the expenses that your bank sees so that you can quickly categorize them with a few taps into the correct budget categories so that you don’t have to manually enter each transaction. I did a trial of EveryDollar Plus when the app first launched and decided not to use it. So I have been using the free version for the last year and a half or two years since the app launched. It’s probably about time I give every dollar plus another try since it’s probably going to be a bit different since all of the updates that they have done since I used it last. Great app that I use all the time! This is one app that I could not do without on my iPhone.
Good tool, some flaws
by Kita_GSD on 2018/03/11 14:23
I do like this app and it has helped me keep track of my spending much better than I had been. It also shows me how much I am really spending on items that I can cut back on, like eating out. Before, I really didn't realize how much we were spending and now I can see it add up as the month goes on. I like being able to split transactions into different categories to track each cost. But the help section is lacking and there was no real tutorial that I saw so I kind of had to learn as I went. The one thing I still can not get an answer to is the income. I can put in a planned amount but sometimes our income is more or less. When I put the actual received amount in as a transaction, it doesn't change my overall monthly amount. So it doesn't account for the over/under. This may be user error, but I've tried everything to get it to work properly and it won't. So I just change the planned amount to what we get paid. Which is fine, although the next month's budget shows the wrong amounts as planned income and I have to change, and it is not at all what the help section says should happen. It seems like the plus version would do it for me, but I am not paying $120 a year for an app to help me budget and save money. And honestly, I think that is shady of Dave Ramsey to even do that considering he preaches about cutting out unnecessary expenses. I'd give this app 4 stars but the lacking help section and fee for everydollar plus makes it lose at least 1 star.
This app is by far the best budgeting tool out there.
by DC_Dave on 2018/03/16 12:36
This app and corresponding desktop interface is by far the best out there. It’s very customizable. I’ve never been good at budgeting because I get paid bi-weekly and I have a variable income. I also travel unexpectedly for my job which throws off my budget by adding reimbursable expenses throughout the month. Through the help and suggestions of the everydollar support staff, I know now how to work this app as an effective tool with all those budgeting variables. You work your current month budget with the paychecks from the previous month. Then I keep a “hill and vallley” account with just enough to cover any short months where my checks may not cover expenses. So far I haven’t had to use that account. For the travel expenses, I created an expense and income category of reimbursable expenses. I know how much I get per day for meals while traveling and I simply add that to the reimbursable lines as the month/travel has gone on. This has been a huge money saver for me. I’m controlling every aspect of my finances by budgeting. It’s the foundation for everything I’m doing with my money. And I highly recommend spending the $120 for financial peace university which as of now includes everydollar plus for a year. Worth. Every. Penny. (And no I don’t work for Dave Ramsey but it’s a great program for getting out of debt)
Really want to like it more
by Trevor5151 on 2020/01/13 13:23
I really want to like it more. The User Interface is a plus for me. Conceptually I like this app way better than any of the others I have used. If you want to only use the free version and add all of your transactions it works great. My issues are with the paid version, and downloading transactions from my bank. I started using it and loved the app. After a couple of months I started to notice transactions missing. I started paying more attention, and compared it to a competitor who I still have my accounts linked to. The competitor shows all transactions, and EveryDollar does not. I put a request into support, and received feedback that they weren’t experiencing any issues with my bank. Was asked to update my login information with my bank to see if that would resolve the issue. I did this and went another couple of weeks having the same issue. I emailed again, and never received a response. I let it go for a little bit, and then emailed again. It has been more than two days, and still no response. My biggest issue is TRUST. If I can’t trust the transactions that are being downloaded, the app becomes useless, and doesn’t allow me to budget correctly. Again, I really want to like this app, but can’t if the version I paid for doesn’t work appropriately.
A Must Have!!
by leongwhyte on 2019/11/29 04:26
If you’re serious about keeping tabs on your budget, this app is a must-have! The free version is nice. However, for $100 per year, you can link your bank and or credit card accounts to track your spending. The app reminds you to create a budget for an upcoming month two or three days before the new month starts! It automatically copies the previous month’s info which makes it easy to tweak budget items and amounts. The app is intuitive because you can create a fund (like a Christmas gift shopping fund, or a vacation fund) and tuck money away each month knowing that when it’s time to pay for that cruise, you can easily transfer the funds and pay without worry. The app also allows you to enter long-term payment accounts; car loan information for example, can be entered and you can more or less keep track of what is owed, on the app. This has made life so much easier for my family! I love Excel, but for $100 per year, I don’t have to spend hours each month tracking where the money went!! Thank you Mr. Ramsey!!
Could’ve Been Great
by Ponyparent on 2019/03/25 15:04
My husband and I purchased this app to help keep us both on the same page about our budget, after ready Dave Ramsey’s books. At first it was great, just set the budget and drag and drop. Then our bank had an outage on the app, three months later our bank still has an outage. I’ve spoken with technical support for the last three months and they have no idea how long it will take to get the bank back. All the while the Mint app is connected to our bank, which is free. So I keep asking and keep getting the same “ we hope to have it fixed soon” message. I finally got so fed up I contacted iTunes to get a refund, but of course, we had canceled the subscription to not renew at the year mark, we couldn’t get any sort of refund. Which we didn’t know, because we followed the instructions from the every dollar company on how to get a refund. So now we are out WAY too much money for an app that literally doesn’t work, and the company has stated there is nothing they can do for us because we purchased the subscription through iTunes and not online. My suggestion, don’t waste your money. Find a different budgeting app that is more reliable or at least cheaper, because if you bank loses connection you won’t see a dime back, which to me seems cruelly ironic.
Nice App
by mldjr on 2018/05/10 23:36
I’ve realized that the more you use the app the more you get into it and you really do see where your money has been going and you can redirect it to the right place. Only reason it is not 5 star review is because you can’t absolutely do everything on the app that you can on the website on a Mac or PC so that can be inconvenient (minor). I had an issue with my income being incorrect and the glitch was fixed within a couple days. You just have to use the help feature. The $10 is worth every penny for the benefit of money you save from using this budgeting tool and to me is not a factor in the grand scheme of things when trying to fix your financial situation even with a tight budget. Once you get a hang of it nobody says if you find a way to maintain your budget another way that you can’t cancel the subscription. You will still have most of the features you need with the free version. I feel like to expect this to all be free and not have to pay for this convenience that this gives you would be a bit a sense of entitlement. Not a good trait. Pay the 10 bucks and use the heck out of it.
Perfect in every way EXECPT no way to allocate
by Steph1234567892 on 2019/04/12 14:52
I love this app and the user friendliness of it over the other highly rated apps in it field. My only complaint is that there is no way to set up your allocations on the app so a written form is still necessary for those that get paid multiple times a month. I think for almost $10 a month that there should be all of the tools that Dave Ramsey has in printable form on his website on the app as well. MAKE THE ALLOCATIONS AN OPTION ON THE APP! All the other things like lump sum payments can be set up using the “Fund” feature, break down of savings, and irregular income planning by setting up as many categories as you desire BUT it is lacking this and this is a huge part of being successful. PLEASE MAKE THE ALLOCATIONS AN OPTION ON THE APP and I will gladly give this five stars! Also as a side note but not a deal breaker or loose of any stars is that it doesn’t like to stay connected to my PayPal account/credit card so I have to re-login when I want it to up day per my paying off that debt and any online purchases I do through PayPal not very many for me so not a big deal. Thank you!
Changed Our Lives!
by kingxicano on 2018/07/12 18:49
I thought I wanted to stick to Dave Ramsey‘s paper budget printout. It seemed too much of a bother to get on the computer to do my budgeting but boy was I wrong! This app does all the adding, subtracting, re-adding, re-subtracting automatically for you! If I need to make a small adjustment to my budget I was having to re-calculate the whole month! What a hassle. Now I can make any adjustments so easily and this really keeps me on track. I prefer to do it on the large computer screen but it’s also so very handy to have the budgeting app on my phone for when I’m out I need to add in a transaction. Another thing I like to do is look at my bank screen on the computer, and use my phone for EveryDollar so I can add in the transactions. There are no advertisements or gimmicks. Since beginning Dave’s program in mid February we have paid off a total of $14,000 in debt and saved another $14,000 towards our emergency fund. This app was pivotal in helping me to organize our household budget. The best part is that my husband has been really impressed!
I guess you need my money more than I do.
by Jack_0811 on 2019/11/28 14:49
First of all being the fact that I signed up for a 14 day trial and then immediately was charged for it. How is that a trial if I’m paying for it right away? To make matters worse I paid through Apple. Everdollar says they can’t refund those types of payments. That’s convenient. Also they don’t give the option to choose the monthly subscription. “Want a 14 day trial? P.S. we’re going to charge you a full years subscription before you’re able to decide if any of this is what you want 😉”. On a lesser note but still irritating. I use a credit card for everything for security purposes so no place I make purchases can possibly have access to the accounts where my personal cash is located. Just in case a place of business gets hacked then I won’t be dealing with an empty account for up to three months. Everdollar of course advises against the use of a credit card even if in my case when it’s not accumulating debt, it’s just a security measure. So when I use the card it shows up in Everydollar as debt even though it’s not debt it’s normal spending that I will refund using my cash from a separate bank. So I can’t even use the app normally because it just thinks I’m constantly going deeper into debt.
This is just what I wanted
by dleepero on 2019/04/30 01:04
This app is wonderful. The layout is very simplistic which is great for easily seeing where I’m at in terms of my spending. Believe it or not the function that sold me on this app was the ability to not only name my budget lines, but the budget categories as well. There were a few apps I tried where you were locked into the names they used. I truly felt like I got to completely customize my budget. Bill reminders and linking your bank account are locked behind the paid version, which is fine, the developers made a great product and should be compensated as such. If you’re not willing to penny up and get the paid version, the free version is still marvelous. I cannot tell you how many times the thought of “I should make a budget” has crossed my mind, If you’re in a similar position, stop reading this review and download it already! You’ll be glad you did. I am about to pay off my second credit card and am almost ready to tackle my auto loan. I’m never looking back.
Great app with some room for improvement
by Anmateo715 on 2019/07/11 23:35
First, I have to say my wife and I really enjoy using this app to track all of our expenses! I love having the ability to drag and drop new transactions into each category. I also like being able see when we go over our under or our projected expenses and having a visual representation of our remaining amounts per category. Having access to budgeting resources and financial peace university is also a huge plus! However, I would really like to have the ability to see which account the transaction came from on the transaction details screen. This would help tremendously in sorting transactions since my wife and I use several different accounts for different purposes. Additionally, I think it would be helpful to have access to a graph or chart that shows spending/saving trends per category over time. This would give users more insight into their spending habits and their ability to accurately project expenses each month. Overall, this a great app that is close to being the perfect budgeting tool!
Needs to be more stable - bank account link
by ICPOWELL on 2018/10/15 01:22
The app is great in that it is a logical way to budget. FPU has excellent information. The app keeps kicking my bank account out and requires me to use a lesser level of security. Given that I have to pay $100 a year for the luxury of connecting my bank account I think it should work seamlessly. I have not changed anything on my account in over a year; yet every two months or so I have to delete my bank info and put it back in and the sift through the double charges. I’m not using a small bank either, it’s one of the largest in the country so there is no reason EveryDollar shouldn’t support it perfectly. I don’t want to use a different app and I’ve even switched bank accounts when EveryDollar stopped supporting a credit union I was with - that was a pain. I hope Ramsey solutions puts some money behind the app to improve it. Especially if you are going to advertise in it and charge $100 a year for the premium feature.
Confusing and misleading if you take them up on an offer to resubscribe.
by Pbauble on 2020/03/19 15:24
We had utilized the EveryDollar app a few years ago, but due to extreme circumstances, we cancelled all subscriptions for a time. Now, we are in a position to get life back in order, and EveryDollar is one way we knew to go about that. When I downloaded the app, I was asked if I would like to subscribe, and the app stated we would have a seven day trial. I didn’t really need a trial, but I followed the prompts to resubscribe. I couldn’t find the monthly option, so I hit subscribe, believing I would be given that option in a later step. I wasn’t. I was charged $129. When I called Apple support to change it, I was told that that option isn’t given to folks who are resubscribing. That’s a little harsh and misleading. Customers should be told UP FRONT that, due to having previously subscribed, they are not eligible for a monthly payment plan. Those of us that are getting back on our feet and really need this should be able to purchase the app. That’s a big hunk of money at one time for some folks. Please, consider changing the process for those of us who would like to resubscribe.
Latest Update has Created Ptoblems
by BusyAFMom on 2018/06/29 13:49
I have used this app for a couple of years, and even paid to take the FPU classes; but, recently I contacted support to get help because—all of a sudden I can’t sign in!! It keeps asking for me to “sign in or create account!” It took quite a while to get my budget where I needed it and now I can’t get to it!! Support wasn’t much help either, the prompt let’s you know that those with the PAID FOR version of the app will be serviced first😳! I’ve been trying to get this fixed for weeks. I’m going to have to go back to Mint or GoodBudget, if the Dave Ramsey crew, can’t get this straightened out. I will NOT pay for the “plus” version and am starting to wonder if this glitch is only affecting those of us without the paid for version. I sincerely hope that is not the case. We are a recently retired military family and I’ve talked up Dave Ramsey and his books and the Financial Peace University study for years...word of mouth is VERY powerful; I hope I am WRONG about this “glitch” being a ruse to get people to subscribe to the paid app. I hope the app creators can get this GLITCH corrected quickly... very disappointed, this has been going on for at least two (2) months.
Former Quicken Budget User
by like_a_gazelle on 2019/04/03 05:26
Since 2004, I’ve used Quicken for our personal financial management. As far as the budget goes, this app blows Quicken’s budgeting tool out of the water. Every Dollar is so user friendly, and the zero dollar concept is much more effective than Quicken’s how much you make- how much you spend method. I love that Every Dollar makes you assign every incoming dollar. If your like me, and tend to overspend in certain categories, you’ll have to take from another category to balance out to zero. Knowing this has helped me re-think impulse buys. I also love that my husband and I both can see and use the app from our cell phones. This means that I don’t have to call him and ask what was the charge or that charge. He can go in and assign it to the appropriate category himself very easily and quickly. I’ve only just started but already I think it’s going to be a great tool for my husband and I to complete all the baby steps.
The Best App Period
by kavika10 on 2020/02/07 07:10
This app was created by Dave Ramsey and his team who help people with building wealth. The people behind this product are A+ and it shows in how intuitive this app is. I paid for the pro version that connects to my bank. Everything gets updated automatically and I literally just drag and drop the transaction into whatever section of the budget I need to. It is a little pricey but I will continue to pay it in a heartbeat because this is a must have tool for my wife and I to continue to work off the same budget simultaneously. It takes about 3 months to really start to put a solid budget together after some trial and error. Do yourself a favor and take financial piece university while your at it. They teach you everything you need to know about finances and how to build wealth. I’ll be debt free this year, and continue using this app for building wealth 🤙🏼 Thanks to Dave and his team for providing these great tools
Paid subscription stopped working
by GD Hero on 2019/07/10 14:50
Concept is great, visually appealing, easy to understand and use, and there’s a nice free version where you manually input your transactions. This honestly WAS a great budgeting app I’ve used with my spouse for several years until the PAID version just stopped working with my bank account for a month with no fix. There’s also no customer support number to call (can only submit an online request for call back) and for nearly the cost of a Netflix subscription, I expected better. There’s nothing like trying to budget when your primary means to do so stops working for a month or longer :( **UPDATE** I’d sent some emails and after just over a month the issues with my bank seem to have been resolved and works as advertised again for the paid version. In the meantime we tried some other budget apps but will continue to use EveryDollar as long as it works. If the App Staff are reading this, thanks and PLEASE work with your third party company repairing bank issues to shorten problem repair time.
Recent update preventing 5 stars
by Quiet Please on 2019/06/02 18:27
I love this app and recommend it to everyone!! I have really been able to get my family finances in order and have started saving a lot. If you’re looking for a budgeting app, your financial situation is most likely not great, just like mine before using the app. So here’s a money saving tip, you don’t need to pay for premium service. Enter everything yourself and be very hands on with all money coming in and going out and you will really start to see results. Good luck! One complaint only and I guess it’s minor. There was recently an update where retailer names will automatically be suggested when entering an expense. Please get rid of it. The local grocery store is not listed and many other places I shop are not listed either. Please go back to the way it was before. It was great. The only thing that would have made that better would be to save the names from my previous entries and then suggest those instead of what it suggests now. Thanks, love the app.
Great budget tool
by QueenELC on 2019/01/28 01:50
We started with the basic EveryDollar app 3 years ago and quickly upgraded to the premium because we couldn’t stay on top of loading our purchases. Game changer and worth every penny! My husband and I can both use the same account to make it easy to be on the same page. Easy to change budget amounts. Can’t change the line item name. Sometimes it logs me out but not a big deal since I remember my info. The emergency savings “goal” I haven’t quite figured out yet because you can put a goal amount but when you save the amount for the month and drag it into that line item, it still shows incompleted. The line items carry over from month to month but I wish there was an option to flag line items as quarterly, annually of every 2 months so I don’t have to remember. Overall a great app to use with your spouse and start telling your money where to go and start winning with your money!
Great app, but some suggestions
by flute43 on 2019/02/06 15:08
Is there a phone number to call for help? I’m only on day 2 of my free two week trial. I have added my bank account. My big suggestion is please change it to a 30 day trial so people can actually understand and see the benefit of budgeting for the whole month. If people can see 30 days more people might be hooked Okay so on to the actual app, not going to lie I love it! I love that it sinks to my phone and bank account and I always have it with me. Unless some thing big happens I will for sure becoming a subscriber. Someone may look at this and think $130 a year is a lot but I say it’s worth keeping such great track of every dollar! This is something I so needed in my life. The 4 star is just because of the trial period length and not sure yet how easy it is to get help. I searched for a phone number to call and couldn’t find one. That could be hard for someone who is not tech savvy. Great app!!
Love the simplicity of this app!
by ambomcf on 2019/06/19 17:49
I really am thankful for this app! I started using it in January, 2019 and have been faithfully budgeting since then. I have such a good picture of exactly where I spend my money, and can hold myself accountable for expenses. I use the free version, and love it. It’s not difficult for me to sit down every 1-2 weeks and make sure all my expenses are up to date. The app makes it really easy to delineate different things that I am saving for, which I LOVE! I’m always planning vacations, so it works it out great for that. My paychecks are not always exactly the same, and it is really simple for me to update my budget throughout the month with each new paycheck, but you could also plan ahead and not have to do that if your paycheck is consistent. I’ve tried mint, ynab, pocketgaurd, and other apps. This by far has been the simplest, and easiest for me to use... which means I actually use it. Great app! Thank you!
Feels outdated. Needs more features.
by Herbz33 on 2018/09/01 16:23
I just finished the total money make over book recently and this has been one of the better apps available, good budgeting app but could be better, there are other apps out there where this app could take a few pages from, features that are not available in this budgeting app. My only complaint is that it doesn't have a calculator built into the app to factor in cash expenses and income. I always find myself leaving the app to use my iphones calculator and having to reopen the app again to put the numbers in to each budgeted item. It would be easier and faster to be able to paste the results in each item. It would also be nice to swipe in between the planned, spent and remaining pages instead having to tap it. not worth the monthly asking price unless it improves. On the plus side the drag and drop feature is awesome if connected to your bank account, I will continue to use the free version for now.
Loving EveryDollar every day
by IAtoSTL16 on 2018/02/05 21:43
Honestly, I can not say how much I truly love this app. It has helped me incredibly to plan for the future, separate my savings goals, and everything. I have the free app vs paying to connect to my bank account. I love the ability to add my purchases right away instead of waiting for them to go through on my bank acct. For 3 months straight I kept track of every transaction and all of my budgeting on PAPER and week-by-week because I have two sources of income that vary each paycheck. Now I am able to look ahead at the month, estimate (on my own) how much I will be getting paid, and then budget from there. There's so much more money I realized I can put into my different savings goals. Unfortunately the benefits aren't the same between the app and online, but I also love that I'm able to create 'funds' for my savings and it continues to track it month to month. THANK YOU for this app 🙏🏼🙏🏼
An idea for improvement
by Syd.E.E. on 2019/08/29 17:10
I just downloaded this app recently so I am still in the process of figuring it out but it seems great so far! I used to use the app YNAB, which I really loved as it was so thorough, but I didn't want to spend the money for it after my free trial was up and they don’t even have a free version. EveryDollar is SO MUCH easier to understand, but of course the free version does not have all of the fancy features that the Plus version has or that YNAB has, which I completely understand and am okay with because I don’t want to pay anything. However, there is ONE THING that I wish EveryDollar had in general that I am really missing about YNAB so far. I see that there is an option for setting a due date for budgeting items, but you can only set a due date for that individual month and set it to repeat each month. I am new to this app so I am not sure how that works exactly, but I just like the savings options of YNAB better where you can set a due date months in advance and track your saving throughout. It also gives you a recommendation of how much you should be putting into that savings fund each month. This is helpful if you want to save for something like a trip next summer so you can set an amount and date that you would like to save that money by If EveryDollar could come up with something like this that would be amazing. I am still going to try it out for awhile though since it is free.
Good, needs improvement

Great app for budgeting. If you want to save money and get a clear idea of how much you’re spending where, and how much money you have spent/have yet to spend at any point in the month, this is an excellent app. It clearly categorizes your expenditures and and is flexible to changes. My only issue is this is not an app that expedites budgeting to make it simple and thoughtless. This is more of a sit-down, enter your budget kind of deal, rather than an on-the-go-it-only-takes-two-seconds-to-add-the-burger-I-just-bought-to-my-budget-kind-of-deal. It would be nice to have an initial screen immediately after opening the app that would allow you to enter an amount of money, classify it as an expenditure or an income, and pick a category (food, gas, etc.) Additionally, I don’t like that you have to create an account to use this app. Occasionally I get logged out and when I’m socializing with friends it’s a bummer to have to log in (with a very complex password) to enter my expenses. I don’t need that kind of privacy around my budget. You should be able to get of currently-permanent widgets (such as “taxes/insurance” or “debt”) I never use them and they clog my interface. My last issue is that my actual income varies from my predicted income, but the budget does not adjust accordingly when I enter my check (I have to manually change my predicted income, which carries over into the next month.)
App that is solid for Day to Day
by Willworldchamp04 on 2017/10/05 13:02
This (Free Version) app works well for everyday use. If you are looking to input data manually and track your expenses this works great. However I like to use my IPad for most of my mobile financing and this is where it is weak. The app doesn't have the ability to stretch to the full size of the screen and it doesn't rotate for portrait to landscape. Unfortunately when my wife and I sit down for the end of month budget review we have to log in online to look at all the features why? Also their are so many features that aren't available online not available on the app. The baby steps tracker is a screen that would be great to look at on the app my wife looks at that screen twice a week as a way to motivate and focus her on our long term goals. The fund categories are great for saving money up for special things however to set them up in the app is difficult. It would be great if the debt categories had a tab that showed our balance what we paid and what we are saving by putting extra payments in. As well as a time counter of the expected payoff date. Also if we have a fund and the need comes that we use some of that money it then is calculated in the spent total and the remaining budget total. Understand why it shows up in the spent total however at our end of the month meetings we have to go back hand calculate what our remaining monthly budget is so we can apply the savings to our debt. This is frustrating.
Free spirit but won’t let me budget
by Big Guns329 on 2018/01/09 05:58
I am the free spirit type, I would love to have the everydollar as someone that is into Dave Ramsey and wants to see my trend over past three months. However as someone that is paid hourly or easier for my brain to look at how much money I have in that envelope using a weekly budget system then monthly. Seeing as how I am paid every Friday literally. I feel when doing monthly I have more in there than what I already have and while some bills like utilities and rent I can pay weekly others like Netflix are so low that to pay that area is ridiculous because we aren’t allowed to do a bi weekly or weekly budget. Other than a couple variances like clothes needed for work or a emergency repair my spending is the same but my biggest issue with Dave requiring monthly has always been the tracking is not the same. I may have $400 in grocery according to the app but really only have $100 that extra $300 can get confusing when grocery shopping and simple is easier when budgeting
I tried to like it. I really did.
by MBM16 on 2018/10/24 17:05
I’m a huge DR fan. His advice helped me gain financial freedom many years ago. When my family and I started looking for a simple, shareable budgeting app we naturally thought of Everydollar. For a long time it worked fine. Although very pricey for the premium edition that downloads transactions it was worth it. We were able to keep a good budget for a long time Then the little annoyances started to creep in. The biggest of which was continually being logged out even AFTER putting in a transaction. I’d be halfway through putting in the details, hit save, and the app would kick me out. I’d have to login and start over. Sometimes I could go days between logging in and other times it would be each time I opened the app. The kicker was when I asked for support this last time. The response was that the issue must be my fault since their staff couldn’t reproduce the problem. I just can’t believe that. I’m not going to pay $10/month to be sassed by support staff when their product is failing me. Good bye, everydollar.
Love the system, but the app just isn’t there yet.
by John in Wichita on 2018/06/22 21:58
I love the concept behind Every Dollar, especially when you pair it with Dave’s Baby Steps. The suggestions for how to use extra money to achieve your goals is great!! But the app falls short when you start using it day to day. Moving extra money from one budget item to another is cumbersome. The same is true for actually tracking how your debt is being paid off - accounting for interest and escrow is a big mess. It’s also messy to really see how much is in your accounts (bank balance minus uncleared transactions). Every Dollar is a great app and I plan to keep using the free version to set up my monthly budgets. But there aren’t enough features for me to use it day by day. It’s just not deep enough to warrant the $100+ price tag of the Plus version. There are other apps out there that do more for less money. Features I’d like to see in the future: 1. View transactions by account and display working balances for all accounts 2. Set up debts and payments including interest and escrow. 3. Easily move extra money from one budget item to another. 4. Set up multiple budgets 5. Upload files like .qfx to import transactions from institutions that don’t allow direct download. 6. Ability to change budget length (weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly). 7. Set up recurring transactions. The idea for this app is solid. The execution’s just not quite there yet - especially not for $100 per year.
Almost perfect.
by BassManNV on 2018/12/27 05:47
The thing about EveryDollar is that (if you have a bank that will import transactions for you) it tracks every purchase and it’s lovely on the surface. It let’s you make sure everything is tied to every budget with a drag and drop ease that is just brilliant. But there’s a pretty big problem that after 2+ years, I still struggle with: funds. They’re a mess and nobody knows how to figure it out. After over a year and several support tickets, they have no desire to help you with that. I feel like I’m part of a pre-release public beta program because they have no way to track how much fund money should be “sitting pretty and set aside” in your checking account. For example: let’s say I have a $300 dollar insurance payment due in 3 months, but I’ve decided to put aside $100/month. Makes sense so far? Good. Now compound that with, oh, literally 15+ other scenarios. Now how much money should be in your checking at the end of this month/right now to account for those 15 various funds? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ The solution is to create a whole new spreadsheet or some other database to track these allocation of funds to answer this question of what “should” my balance be— but then why am I paying EveryDollar? Grrrr... One day they’ll care about people who save like this and need a precise accounting of their budget. Seriously, I don’t know how else to solve this problem.
Good app, terrible service
by Hot mama 3! on 2017/09/30 16:07
This app worked great for us for the few months that we used it. I’ve never been great at budgeting and we decided to do a trial version of the plus to see how we liked it. It was convenient but after getting billed the $100 for the plus version, we already started to question it. The app worked fine. We question our decision making for spending $100 on something that we were trying to use to help us save money.... oops. We decided to try and cancel, for the last few months I have been trying to cancel my subscription. Their website says it’s a subscription through Apple so you have to cancel it through them. My apple account shows nothing. Well this morning, without warning we got charged another $100. It’s sad that a company that is “out there to help out people with finances,” is doing such a big money grab with this. So now for the next few days, I get to waste my time trying to get them to give me my money back that I didn’t have to give them in the first place.
Paid EveryDollar is Great, but it has it limits
by Anynon on 2019/07/23 14:50
First, I totally recommend this budgeting app. I have explored and used everything including Mint and Personal Capital and others! This is the best one by far to help you actually stay on your budget. The paid version is a absolute must though, without imported transactions I would not use it! Second, it has some quirks I would love to see improved. I suggest linking savings accounts to the funds themselves so that it stays in sync with added interest and what you actually put in there! Right now it generates 2 transactions the negative from checking and the positive into savings, which you have to delete one transaction so they don’t “cancel each other out” on the budget. Other little weird work around for different things exist if you look at their forums. Other than that it’s by far the best app we have used for helping us stay on track!
Great but needs improvements
by Atask88 on 2018/10/24 19:33
I’ve used this app for about a year now. I paid for the “plus” version. I found it a little pricey but continued to pay it anyway because having all of my transactions downloaded for me was worth it. I’ve loved the app although there have always been a few smaller things I would have liked to improve. For example, there are certain aspects that can only be edited from the desktop version, not from inside the app itself. All of these things were minor and not enough to get me to stop using the app. However we recently got an American Express credit card and I found that I could not sync purchases from this card to the app as they do not support it. I emailed and was told they had no plans to support Amex in the near future. This was enough for me to end my subscription and I’m now on the hunt for another budget app. Overall this is a good app but for the price could use some improvements!
Almost There...
by Drew from Hilliard on 2019/05/25 12:37
Love the app but it falls short of 5 stars only because the funds don’t account for the previously saved amount when charging against the fund in the budgeted month. For example, let’s say the fund budget for the month is $100 and the previous amount in the fund is $300 for a total of $400. Let’s also say the remaining overall budget for the month is $2000. Now a purchase is made using all of the $400 available in the fund. Instead of only charging the $100 budgeted for the month in the fund against the remaining overall budget for the month, the app deducts the entire $400 available in the fund from the remaining monthly budget. This makes the overall remaining budget $1600 when it actually should be $1900 if taking into account the previous deposits in the fund. This is my only complaint with the app but it’s significant as it basically makes the fund feature obsolete.
Mostly good, hard to reconcile at end of month
by FI for the win on 2019/03/01 22:00
This is a free app, and I very much appreciate it. Thanks to the Ramsey organizations for providing. The income and expenses parts of the app are pretty good and intuitive. It’s easy to account for income and spending. My problems with the app have to do with reconciling the budget at the end of the month. Let’s say that you earned a little more than you expected and spent a little less. That’s a good thing, right? Earn more, spend less, and apply the excess to debt or savings. Its challenging to account for added income in the Every Dollar app and that’s further complicated if you want to use added money to apply to a fund, particularly if you have more than one fund. The function is just not intuitive and the funds aren’t easily modified when you want to make minor changes based on what you actually end up with as a surplus at the end of the month. The instructions could be improved. But I think how the funds are structured is more the problem. You can solve the “extra earnings” issue at the end of the month fairly easily by just changing the budgeted amounts to what the actual amounts received are in your budget. However I’ll probably just treat amounts set aside in “funds” as expenses in in the future and account for those funds outside the app.
Great App
by MaryTonyKC on 2019/06/10 13:23
I love this app and the tech support is really helpful and stays with you until it works. I’ve been using it for two months. In the long run it’s worth it to pay for the app because of you are really tracking and trying to budget this app is as up to date as your bank account. I tried using my bank account budget tool and it was not nearly as user friendly for the family budget. It lets you look at planned/spent/remaining categories in each budget item within seconds. It’s helps keep track lump sum budget items that used to sneak up on us. We realized we needed to be setting back $2000 a month for a fund for lump sum spending. How many months and years of stress did that category alone cause! The only person who doesn’t need this app is someone who has no income. Thanks Dave!
Good but needs some added features
by sweetncookies on 2017/12/08 13:38
I really like this app except it needs more options for people who get paid on a biweekly or weekly. It is great to see my overall monthly budget but I would like it to be able to show which paycheck is paying to what category. Everything is jumbled in all together as one month and I have to separate it out by labeling groceries 1, groceries 2 etc. even when I do that I still have to figure out how much of each paycheck can contribute to a category. It is really annoying. Through the Dave Ramsey Facebook groups, this is a common reason many choose not to use this app. I personally have to use this with Fudget, because every dollar has it where it has to be done on a monthly basis. It would be great if the developers could make it where a person could switch back and forth from monthly to pay period to get a complete view of where their money is going.
2.5 star review, Good- needs some major additions
by Snackb on 2018/08/18 06:57
I have been using EveryDollar now for 10 months and it is great for very basic use, however it needs some pretty major functions added. Being able to track how much you’ve transferred into your emergency fund would be extremely useful. Now that I’m not paying off debt and building my emergency fund the “remaining” feature isn’t accurate because it counts money that I have moved into my EF. The “remaining” feature should only include income that you have received minus planned expenses, not counting income you haven’t received yet minus everything you’ve spent. Also, I’m really surprised you can’t budget out per paycheck!! I’m shocked that the only option given is one month when a lot of people need to budget per paycheck because different things are due at different times. Hope this app keeps adding major major additions and that they don’t just get comfortable because there is so much potential here.
I want to love this app, but...
by MAGwyre on 2019/06/01 13:16
I want to love this app more than I do but there are a few things holding me back from a higher rating. First, it does not update often enough. Even now, I’ve been waiting for over 6 hours for it to catch up with my bank and that’s after about 4 or 5 nudges within the app itself. Still no updates. For $9.99 per month, I’d like for it to be more responsive and work on MY time, not its own. Yes, I have confirmed that the transactions have posted to the bank. Second, I’d like to track Baby Steps within the app and not have to go to the website for that. Third, I’d like the ability to track annual spending per category (ex, how much have I spent on clothing or gas this year so far? Or medical expenses?). Other than these issues, there is enough to like about the app to hold on to it for now. UPDATE - I’m looking for a different app. The glitches with EveryDollar are too frustrating and not worth paying $10 per month anymore.
Best app we’re actually saving now!
by MomWithABudget on 2018/07/31 03:27
I have always tried making a budget, but I never take the time every month to write all the actual amounts that go in and out so we kept spending small amounts on food over and over and never knew how much since it didn’t seem like that much. The first month I had a free trial where it synced with my bank account and we spent -1200, granted it was vacation and birthday time but still we had no idea! Thank you so much for having an app that I can just sync with my checking and pull over to a category. It shows your budgeted amount, actual amount, difference and tells you in the end if you were in the black or red. I think this is a life long change! Thank you app makers so much for making this and making so affordable!
Doesn’t load transactions
by alyyyV on 2018/09/04 22:25
I LOVE this app. Absolute life changer. BUT I’m slightly disappointed in the premium $10 a month option I have selected. My ONLY complaint IS that it often takes three or four days before my banks transactions are loaded into the app for me to place them into their categories. Three or four days later I have sometimes forgotten what exactly the transaction was. This app would be MUCH more beneficial to me IF it were to load my transactions in a more timely manner. I would like to end my day by sliding my loaded debit card transactions into their rightful place. Honestly rather than paying the $10 I may suggest to someone that it may be more worthwhile to NOT select the premium package and just manually insert their transactions at the end of the day. For this reason I often contemplate cancelling the premium.
After a month of trying this app...
by Redhead468 on 2019/02/22 00:34
I have been seeking a mobile option to manage my finances. I have been using Mint for several months, but I wanted to see what else is out there. This app is very easy to set up and use, but it seems to be missing a few elemental features. The app will only allow me to add one account from my bank. I have 2 different accounts, but after trying multiple times to add them both , I still only see one. Also, this app follows the pattern of other apps I’ve tried and completely leaves out a checkbook register and/or reconciliation features. Some of us old schoolers like the checkbook register... it’s hard to get away from. One more thought, a bill pay feature seems to be an important part of budget tracking, so I don’t get why there is bill payment feature. I wish the app fulfilled all my wishes, but sadly it does not.
Doesn’t update consistently
by Rjmlh on 2019/05/17 14:44
We’ve been through FPU and are doing great at staying on top of expenses and following the budget we put in place. Part of the process is Every Dollar, which gives us our budget at a glance. For a while it worked great. In the past few months, it hasn’t updated our banking information consistently. Sometimes it won’t update for two or three days and it ALWAYS says says something has changed on my bank’s website. I’ve deleted my bank account and added it back in, logged out and back in, but no change. It would be so nice to login to the app and see an accurate representation of my bank activity without refreshing the app multiple times praying it actually updates. For the money you charge to keep the Every Dollar account active, the app and desktop interface should work much better than it does.
Best Budgeting App
by Micah 👍🏻 on 2018/12/23 05:55
The charge for this app is COMPLETELY worth it. I’ve tried Mint and reviewed others but this one is the best. I get all my transactions automatically delivered to my app and with a simple drag and drop into a line item I am done. I’ve heard people say they would just keep track manually of all their transactions...You are kidding yourself. You may in the beginning but you will forget some and eventually get tired of doing it. The main thing that sold me was that it copies last months budget for the next month. Others I had to recreate each month. My wife and I review this at the end of each month and it’s been a great experience and essential tool for paying off debt! We’re telling our money where to go, not the other way around!
iPad app is so bad as to almost be useless
by Yellowjackt65 on 2019/06/22 15:31
I love almost all things Dave Ramsey and I’ve put off writing this review for quite a while because of my bias towards loving Ramsey solutions products; however, I simply can’t take it anymore and need to voice my displeasure with the iPad version of this app. First of all, the iPhone version of this app is GREAT; however, the iPad version is absolutely horrible. The biggest issue is that it’s not a true iPad app and as such, the iPhone version of the app will scale up to try and fit the larger iPad screen. This in and of itself is bad enough but the next glaring issue is the straw that breaks the camel’s back. The app is stuck in portrait mode and won’t rotate when I use my iPad in landscape mode. I won’t even mention the fact that it logs me out on a fairly regular basis (I’m assuming I get logged out whenever the app updates) since it’s not the only iPad app that does this. I guess I’ll be stuck using EveryDollar on my phone until they fix this train wreck of an iPad app.
Best Budgeting App
by azsandslinger on 2018/05/10 22:24
Disclaimer: I am a Dave Ramsey fan That said, this app is really no frills. It’s simple and the interface is easy to use. Exactly what someone wants. From the beginner to the elaborate spreadsheet user, it will cover your bases in an easy to read format. I only have 2 cons. You cannot move items between categories. Simply put; if you have “laundry” in the “household” category and want it in the “Lifestyle” category; you cannot just drag and drop it. The other is keeping a running total in the Debt category. You CAN see this on the PC web-based version but not in the app. It’s important to note that if you go to the web-based page on your mobile device, this is ALSO limited. You have to log into it via a real PC to see these features.
Best budget app

I just really started using the app after many starts and stops of following a budget. I am very impressed at how quickly I can categorize every transaction (even with “splits”). Since I’m relatively new at using this app I needed to go back and correct some errors on my part. The process was simple and far superior to having to delete the transaction and start again. In addition it’s so helpful to have the app do the math for you when you purchase multiple categories on one receipt! Another great feature is the ease in which you can change the date of the transaction since I don’t record my transactions immediately. I have been recommending Dave Ramsey to friends and family for awhile now and will show them this app!
Best Budget Tool for Couples

EveryDollar is the best budgeting tool I’ve found that keeps my wife and I on track and in sync month after month. We’ve used several other free and paid for budget and finance apps/software before. We were longtime Mint users. While other apps have more features, graphs, charts, tools, etc. for managing your finances and net worth, there is no better tool out there for getting two people to coordinate their household spending. Let’s be honest, talking about money and your finances with your partner can sometimes be hard. Having a service that you both are comfortable using, helps each of you stay informed on monthly spending and budget tracking, and reduces the need to constantly “check-in” with each other to discuss what you can and can’t buy, is a terrific tool. I haven’t always been a fan of paying a monthly fee for budget services, but EveryDollar Plus is worth it and frankly I’m willing to pay a little money for a service that helps us save a hundred times more per month then it costs and supports the team who builds new enhancements and features. Awesome app, that helps couples budget, track and communicate together.
